Good luck Brother - and stay safe if at all possible. Thank you and your guys for your selfless service.

You know, we do have an Adopt A Team thing we do here from time to time.

You hard hitters need anything over there?

I can't think of anything off the bat. Believe it or not the Army does a great job of keeping us on point gear wise, and the Polish love us. My wife and another wife back home started a non profit set up called "Operation We Love Our 810th Sappers" and send us all kinds of packages. Thanks for the offer and the info though. I'll be looking into one of those 700 packages.

afi1 don't overlook the M1A if you want to play with the .308. The loaded Springfield or some of the other makes are superbly accurate rifles. I see you are from Georgia and Ol Hook Boutin is over in Bremen and he will accurize an M1A to be truly a tack driver. He built up three for me.

Good luck over there, stay safe and thanks for your service. Maybe you can come do some shootin with us sometime at the range. Some of us older ex troops still favor the real steel and wood of the M14 and M1 platforms. Former B Btry 4th Bn 17th Arty.

Thanks man. I'd love to go shooting with you guys. I need pointers on distance shooting anyway. All of my training thus far has been in reflexive fire/room clearing. I like the M1 platform as well. My Grandfather has several low number Springfield's and a few Winchesters. He doesn't shoot them too much, and keeps them in their "shot at a few Nazis" condition. I'm looking into a 700 from snipercentral. It should fit my needs pretty well. If I decide to pick up a semi-auto for distance, it'll probably be a PTR91; but I've got a Gixxer engine to rebuild... Thanks for the good words though, take care yourself.
